Hi everyone. I’m Rob Whyte, the brains behind this English writing and communication website.
I hope you find the ideas, lessons and worksheets useful. I really hope these materials help you become a better writer.
Professor. Writer. On-line wizard.
Here’s a little bit about me. I live in Busan, South Korea. I’m an English professor at a private university. My main teaching subjects are English conversation and composition. Sometimes, I teach politics to students who want to study in America, Australia or England. They are high level students but they need help with their writing. So, I teach them how to write a thesis statement, structure paragraphs and create proper academic essays.
I’m also a professional writer. I have written about a dozen books and articles. Travel and education are my main writing interests. In the past, I have published books and articles about business, culture, the environment and medicine. My writing has been published by international giants like Lonely Planet, The Independent (UK newspaper) and the American Academy of Pain Management.
You may be asking yourself, “Is this Rob Whyte really a professional writer?”
The answer is, “Oh yes!”
Here are a few examples of my writing.
- Online stories: Here are two South Korea travel essays I wrote for Lonely Planet in 2015: one about the city of Busan and the other about Jeju Island.
- Books: I have written for three travel books by Lonely Planet. All of my work has been for Korea guidebooks. Here’s a link to the most recent book, which is for sale all over the world.
- Articles: Here’s a travel story about Seoul, South Korea published in The Independent, a flashy newspaper in the UK.
- Essays: I’ve written about 25 essays and articles to promote business. Here’s one white paper that was distributed through a client’s email marketing program.
That’s all about me. Come back to the website often. I add new English writing lessons and ideas every week.
